EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique)
EFT, Emotional Freedom Techniques, is a universal healing tool that is based on the body’s meridian system. It is easy to learn and the basic protocol takes only minutes to apply. EFT is also a serious healing modality with many aspects to master. EFT can be used alone or with a practitioner. You don’t have to believe in EFT or understand how it works in order to get results. Beginners and experts and folks in-between all have benefited from it. EFT is based on the discovery statement by Gary Craig:
“The cause of all negative emotions is a disruption in the body’s energy system.”
Overcoming Anxiety Workshop
A Holistic Approach to Addressing Anxiety with Dara Paprock MA, e-RYT, TSYT.
This workshop is designed for people that suffer from anxiety, GAD, Panic Disorder, PTSD and spouses, care providers and practitioners. It is taught in a group setting, yet is a private and personal experience.
Explore self-healing modalities that are effective and profoundly liberating when combating the debilitating effects of anxiety. Learn breath work, meditation and gentle movement techniques that help to break the psychological, biochemical, and physical cycles that keep anxiety in your life. A presentation of what happens in your mind and body while experiencing anxiety, and tools to “turn off” the fight or flight response, and “turn on” the relaxation response will be taught in the first class. Optional acupuncture will be offered during guided meditation (Yoga Nidra) in all sessions. A take-home program with daily exercises and lifestyle suggestions will be handed out.
Yoga Therapy is a blend of traditional Yoga practices, Ayurveda, alternative medicine and modern medical science. We will also explore nutrition, herbal remedies, aromatherapy, acupressure, sound healing, and movement. The more you know about anxiety and how to fight it, the easier your journey.
UZAZU is a beautiful way of connecting your mind, body and emotions so you can deeply engage with yourself, others and the world we live in. A language that ‘speaks’ without words, UZAZU uses simple combinations of vowel sounds, thoughts, and movements to tap directly into different dynamics of energy—it gives you the tools you need to unlock the enormous potential of your body-mind connection. UZAZU empowers us to access new levels of both wellbeing and productivity.
Like yoga and tai chi, UZAZU has been born of embodied experience and extensive collaborative discovery. Like riding a bike, or brushing your teeth, after a short period of repetition, you’ll find that UZAZU goes beyond something you learn or do—it quickly becomes an instinctive part of who you are.
Why not devote an entire weekend to the practice and study of yoga?!
